How to get a Student ID Card

If you are new to UNSW this term or requesting your Student ID card for the first time please follow the below steps to obtain your Student ID Card.

Before requesting your Student ID Card

1. Accept your offer and enrol into classes


You will need to accept your offer and enrol into classes online via myUNSW. 

Further information and a step by step guide can be found on the Getting Started website.

Please note: You will need to wait 24 hours after enrolling into classes before requesting your ID Card.

2. Prepare your identification documents

When presenting in person to request your ID card in person you will need to bring accepted valid identification documentation.

Your identification documentation will be used to verify your identity and confirm your personal details (including your full legal name and if applicable your residency/citizenship status). If the UNSW record of your personal details are incorrect we will use your identification documentation to update those details.

If you do not present accepted valid identification documentation we will be unable to issue you with your ID card.
